NATURE OF REQUEST FOR INDUSTRY COMMENTS This is not a bid solicitation. This RFIC will not result in the award of any contract, therefore, potential suppliers of any goods or services described in the attached project outline should not earmark stock or facilities, nor allocate resources, as a result of any information contained in this RFIC. Nor will this RFIC result in the creation of any source list, therefore, whether or not any potential supplier responds to this RFIC will not preclude that supplier from participating in any future procurement. Also, the procurement of any of the goods and services described in this RFIC will not necessarily follow this RFIC. This RFIC is simply intended to solicit feedback from industry with respect to the matters described in this RFIC. 2. NATURE AND FORMAT OF RESPONSES REQUESTED Respondents are requested to provide their comments, concerns and, where applicable, recommendations on how the requirements or objectives described in the project outline could be satisfied. Respondents should explain any assumptions they make in their responses. 3. RESPONSE COSTS Canada will not reimburse any respondent for expenses incurred in responding to this RFIC. 4.

Review Team: A review team composed of representatives from PWGSC will review the responses on behalf of Canada. Canada reserves the right to hire any independent consultant, or use any Government resources, which it deems necessary to review any response. Not all members of the review team will necessarily review all responses. Confidentiality: Respondents should mark any portions of their response that they consider proprietary or confidential. Canada will treat those portions of the responses as confidential to the extent permitted by the Access to Information Act. Follow-up Activity: Canada may, in its discretion, contact any respondents to follow up with additional questions or for clarification of any aspect of a response. 5.

As you may know, the current POR Standing Offers that came into effect on April 1, 2010, includes extension periods that will expire March 31, 2015. The Standing Offers provides Government of Canada departments and agencies access to prequalified firms with expertise, experience and capacity necessary to achieve value for money. As a next step in the development of new POR Standing Offers, PWGSC is seeking comments from suppliers on a number of topics. 7.1) Research Streams The current Standing Offers for POR services includes the following research streams: 1.

Series C Quantitative Research for all target populations and quantitative research methods; 4. Series D Qualitative/Quantitative Research for all target populations and research methods; and 5.
